Percussion

Percussion instruments come in all shapes and sizes, even small enough to fit in your hand! Hand percussion instruments may not be as big as djembes and drum kits, but they pack a lot of rhythm and produce a powerful sound in the hands of a passionate percussionist. Whether used alone, with other hand percussion instruments, or to accent drums, hand percussion instruments are versatile music makers. Their small design and playability also make them ideal for all ages, even kids!

X8 Drums offers a wide range of hand percussion instruments, from simple shakers, chimes, and bells, to more exotic rainsticks, didgeridoos, and kalimbas. Most of our hand percussion instruments are designed and crafted by brands you trust to deliver quality products. Other pieces in our collection are completely handmade in Africa to provide authentic, one-of-a-kind instruments.
